Project ADAPT seeking more MN National Guard and Reserve families to evaluate parenting resources
Associate Professor Abi Gewirtz and her team at Project ADAPT are recruiting more than 300 Minnesota National Guard and Reserve families to participate in an ongoing study that provides and evaluates parenting resources for children's resilience as parents deploy and return home from military service. Military families with children between the ages of 4 and 12 who have experienced one deployment since 2001 and live in the Twin Cities, Mankato, and St. Cloud are eligible to join the study.
Since Project ADAPT (After Deployment: Adaptive Parenting Tools) launched last year, nearly 100 families have participated. Groups are now forming for this spring. More groups will follow with the next wave of returning parents--about 2,500 soldiers are expected back in Minnesota in May.
